    I'm sorry to tell you but Bootcamp will only work on Intel processor based Macs
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    The hardware architecture for Intel based Macs is very different. There's no way of 'converting' a G5 to Intel.

    Even products like VM ware Fusion and Parallels that allow running of XP without bootcamp required an Intel Mac

    Maybe other forum members will be able to suggest another solution.
